Twente vs Ajax Kick Off Time

Event details:
NAME: Twente – Ajax
DATE: 9 Feb 2023
TIME: 17:45 UTC
VENUE: De Grolsch Veste

It has been Twente’s tight defensive record that has seen them climb to the heights of fifth in the Eredivisie table this season, as they currently hold the best defensive record in the division with 10 clean sheets and a league-best 13 goals conceded so far.

However, their strong defensive record has begun to show vulnerability in recent games, as they have conceded four goals in their previous three affairs and have conceded in each of those matches.



This will be the second time that Twente will go head to head with the Eredivisie champions this year, after being unable to capitalise on an early red card and subsequently being held to a 0-0 draw with Ajax in January.

n their most recent victory against Cambuur, Serbian forward Dusan Tadic opened the scoring for Ajax before Steven Berghuis put the result beyond their opponents after scoring a brace, but it was the young Dutch forward Brian Brobbey who then began to inflict the embarrassment on their opponents as he came off the bench to score himself a brace, leaving the final result 5-0.



It is a marked upturn from the scarcely-seen seven-match winless league run which preceded those back-to-back triumphs, a spell which included six successive draws and ultimately cost Alfred Schreuder his job, with Johnny Heitinga now in interim charge.



The ability to finish off chances has served Ajax well so far this season, as they reign supreme on the goalscoring statistics in the Eredivisie having dispatched 56 goals so far.

It is Ajax who have the historical advantage across recent encounters with the Twente, as they have not been defeated by their opponents since 2020 when they were narrowly defeated 2-1 by a Queensy Menig brace.
